    Default Linda Stein, Former Manager Of The Ramones, Found Beaten To Death...

    Ex-Ramones Manager Stein Beaten To Death
    November 01, 2007,
    Linda Stein, a pioneer in New York's punk music scene who later became known as a real estate "broker to the stars," was beaten to death inside her Manhattan apartment, the medical examiner ruled.

    Stein's daughter found her body Tuesday night face down in the living room of the Upper East Side apartment in New York, where she lived alone. There were no signs of a break-in or robbery, and police said they had no motive or suspects.

    An autopsy found that Stein, 62, died from blows to the head and neck, medical examiner spokeswoman Ellen Borakove said Wednesday.

    Stein was the ex-wife of Seymour Stein, former president of Sire Records, which was the launching pad for the Ramones, Talking Heads and Madonna.

    A former schoolteacher, she and Danny Fields co-managed the Ramones during the band's heyday. She is credited with bringing the Ramones to England for their infamous July 4, 1976, concert that helped spark the young British punk scene.

    Reached Wednesday by telephone, Fields said Stein had the right temperament for the rough and raunchy world of punk. "She was very tough, but very loving and generous," he said.

    Friends and family were stunned by the news she was a victim of violence, Fields said. "It was enough dealing with her death," he said. "Now it's a murder."

    After Stein and Fields parted ways with the Ramones in 1980, she eventually launched a real estate career brokering multimillion-dollar Manhattan apartments for rock'n'roll royalty, including Sting and Billy Joel.

    Aside from real estate, "her great joy in life was her first grandchild," a 3-year-old girl, Fields said.

    My friend was the national publicity director for Sire Records, working directly underneath Seymour Stein. (oh that just opened up a tin of worms!). She was responsible for the Ramones, Talking Heads and all of the great late '70s Sire acts. And to know Seymour was to know Linda, as well. Linda was omnipresent at all the CBGBs gigs for these artists. And she was cool (or about as cool as someone who took off in a limo every night and dressed to the hilt for a CB's gig).

    I've since grown estranged from this friend but can't help wondering how she's feeling about this loss. For me, it is a sad, senseless coda to a wonderful part of my life.

    Default Arrest Made In Linda Stein Slaying

    from www.billboard.com:

    November 09, 2007, 12:35 PM ET

    The personal assistant of former Ramones manager Linda Stein has been arrested in Stein's fatal bludgeoning at her Fifth Avenue apartment.

    Formal charges were pending against Natavia Lowery, according to a New York police spokesperson, who added that she "made statements implicating herself" in the killing.

    Stein's daughter found her body the night of Oct. 30 face down in the living room of her $3 million apartment, where she lived alone. There were no signs of a break-in or robbery.

    An autopsy found that Stein, 62, died from blows to the head and neck.

    Stein was a pioneer in New York's punk music scene, becoming a fixture at the legendary CBGB club in Manhattan. She was the ex-wife of Seymour Stein, the former president of Sire Records, the launching pad for the Ramones, Talking Heads and Madonna.
